The body lay cold, motionless and tranquil environed by mournful expressions. As I witnessed the body lying devoid of any animation, memories passed through my mind reminding me of the days when this same body seemed so lively and full of dynamism. What was it that happened? What was it that happened? Who had taken away the animating force of from the body, why didn’t it breathe anymore?
It was then I realized, the body had fallen into eternal slumber never to awake again.
Death looked and with its piercing eyes, it created an unquenchable void within my core. With every passing moment we proceed closer to death. Fear of death turned into a fire in my bosom that compelled me to start a ...view middle of the document...
Please, keep it in mind, and make more specific statements henceforth.
Woman 1: …………
Fat Man: So will you specify and correctly define God with all the attributes?
Woman 1: God is the first cause, omnibenevolent, omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent.
Fat Man: Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able not willing then why call him God? That is what Epicurus said.
Monk: He who has eyes can see the sickening sight; Why does not God set his creatures right? If his wide power no limit can restrain, why is his hand so rarely spread to bless? Why are all his creatures condemned to pain? Why does he not to all give happiness? Why do fraud, lies, and ignorance prevail? Why triumphs falsehood — truth and justice fail? I count your God one the unjust among. Who made a world in which to shelter wrong.
Woman 1: You people are too arrogant! The wisest human is just a monkey compared to the wisdom of God. If you try to comprehend God you will turn insane. What a naïve effort trying to judge the mind of God with such a feeble finite mind that we have. God works on his own way. He created the whole universe. You! You are not even dust compared to the galaxy. And that massive things were created by God alone. And how dare you to put this Supreme God to trial? And also it is all very clear. We suffer because of our own faults. We were given free will; it is we who turned away from God and induced all the suffering. Freedom from suffering can easily be gained by submitting to God. And even though a complete suffering free life may not be possible for some people in life, in afterlife they will be surely rewarded by God if they keep their faith.
Fat Man: Hahahahaha! Hahahaha! You said it is a naïve effort to judge or comprehend God yet you keep on attaching attributes like omnipotence, Omnibenevolence, and all that things. You keep on shaping and describing your God however you want and then say God cannot be comprehended and understood when any criticism is present. What a joke!
Woman 1: I am not making up my own God! I am talking about the true God clearly depicted by the scriptures written by the prophets of the God.
Fat Man: What makes you believe those are true?
Woman 1: What makes...
